Twice Freed

by Patricia St. John

 

Onesimus is a slave.

Eirene is a rich merchant’s daughter.

Onesimus longs to gain his freedom and Eirene’s love. However, he doesn’t realize where true freedom lies.

He wants nothing to do with Jesus Christ. His master, Philemon, may follow the teachings of the Christ and his apostle Paul… but Onesimus has other plans.

This is a great book!  My mom read it aloud to my siblings and I several years ago, and are currently in the middle of it again!

The story, based off of the book of Philemon in the Bible, follows the life of Onesimus, Philemon’s slave.

I love the message of forgiveness and redemption.  Onesimus isn’t forgiving and when his master, mistress, mother, and the girl he loves become Christians, he doesn’t understand the love of Christ.  But as the book goes on…. I can’t tell you any more.  You’ll have to read it. 😉

Through All Things

Through All Things

Malachi Cyr

Through All Things by [Cyr, Malachi]Loved ones must be rescued.
His brothers depend on him for survival.
The trail behind him is already stained with pain and loss.

Allen is only seventeen, but tragedy and a strong sense of duty already weigh on his shoulders. As the French and Indians wage brutal warfare on the English settlers, Allen embarks on a treacherous journey to free his captive sister and her friend.

With little hope of survival and even less for success, Allen knows he needs God to do the impossible. But if God is able to do all things, why does everything seem to be going wrong?

(4.5 stars)

I follow Malachi’s blog, and had been watching his progress on Through All Things for quite a while.  I’m pleased to say that I wasn’t disappointed!

Allen’s responses to the hardships in his life felt real.  Though I felt the author could have used more emotion at times, I found the book a fun and easy read.  🙂  It had action, a touch of romance, and is set in the French and Indian War era – which is a fascinating time period!

Find Through All Things on Amazon!

 

See y’all next week,

20 Question Book Tag

I got tagged by Kaylee @ Kaylee’s Kind of Writes for this blog tag!  I am going to do this as a sort of get back into blogging for the year. 🙂 Hopefully I’ll be starting book reviews up again soon!

#1: How many books are too many in a series?

That’s hard.  Some series there are too many books, and the only reason is that the author seemed to be running out of ideas. (I can’t stand those!) Usually between 3 and 8 books is about right.

#2: How do you feel about cliff-hangers?

Ah yes.  Cliffhangers.  They are so awesome! XD  That is, when I’m writing not reading….

#3: Hardcover or paperback?

Probably paperback.

#4: Favorite book?

Only one???!!! In nonfiction, the favorites are probably The Count of Monte Cristo and the Wars of the Realm trilogy. (I know, that makes four total.  But anyone who likes reading won’t blame me.)

#5: Least Favorite Book?

Let me think…. Sorry.  No answer.  XD

#6: Love Triangles, yes or no?

So-so.  They’re way overused and clichéd, especially in romance movies.  I guess I don’t care either way!

#7: The most recent book you couldn’t finish?

The Railway Children by E. Nesbit is the last one I can remember and that was years ago.  I finish most books I start unless they’re super boring. XD

#8: A book you are currently reading?

Les Miserables by Victor Hugo.

#9: Last book you recommended to someone?

The Count of Monte Cristo.  Just today, actually.

#10: Oldest book you’ve read? (publication date)

A few Shakespeare plays which are from the 1500s, then the Bible (1611) and Don Quixote (1605 and 1615).

#11: Newest book you’ve read? (publication date)

Through All Things by Malachi Cyr, published June 22nd, 2018.  Next oldest is Kiera by Kate Willis, published June 20th, 2018.

#12: Favorite author?

Don’t have one, but I really like: Alexandre Dumas, Chuck Black, Jane Austen,

#13: Buying books or borrowing?

Um….. I don’t usually do either.  (The best thing to do is get books (mainly classics) free on Kindle. ;))

#14: A book you dislike that everyone seems to love?

I can’t really think of one!  I could probably think of the other way around, one I like that everyone else dislikes, would be Ivanhoe by Sir Walter Scott.

#15: Bookmarks or dog-ears?

Bookmarks.

#16: A book you can always reread?

Rise of the Fallen by Chuck Black.

#17: Can you read while listening to music?

I can, mainly because I can read through anything.  My family says that I am deaf when I read. 😛

#18: One POV or multiple POVs?(For anyone that doesn’t know, that is Point Of View),

If the different POVs is clearly defined, I don’t mind them.  If they blend together, switching from one character to the next in a single scene, I find that confusing and  not enjoyable to read.

#19: Do you read a book in one sitting or over multiple days?

Depends on the length.  I am a fast reader, so unless I get interrupted I can read one in a sitting.

#20: Who do you tag?

PerAnna @ Life Without a Latte!

And no one else because I’m running out of time.

See y’all Friday!
